Wigs don't come in Men's and Women's. They are Unisex.

I would just suggest buying a cheap wig or even a used wig from someone in the used wig section to practice with. It doesn't have to be the exact color yet, but there are plenty of wigs in the $10-15 range which you can buy and practice cutting and styling on. That way you don't have to worry about a dozen wig options later on or cutting into the actual wig you plan to use and messing up.

You seems to already know what you want or don't want in terms of an actual base wig to cut and style (or to do so as little as possible) by what we've all linked for you and what you've voiced your opinions on. Tutorials were even linked, and that's about all we can do for you. We've pretty much held your hand and spoon fed you when it comes to this particular style and you've practically ignored just about all the advice given.

This thread is now irrelevant to the section it's in...

May I also state....the wig in the stock photo you linked does not come to you like that. The bangs will be down to your chin. You will have to trim them.

This is how all cosplay wigs work.

They do require trimming and maintenance, no matter where you decide to get your wig from. Unless you buy something from someone second hand and they have already trimmed it themselves.

That's because you only posted this TODAY!! Chill out. Give it time. I've had a for sale ad with the same cosplay for like, half a year..

Also, note that you want a CIEL wig in a color that Ciel doesn NOT have have..I'm pretty sure I've never seen anyone cosplay Ciel with red hair. And he has a pretty specific style that isn't the norm for anime. So it's likely no one will have one. ALL of the wigs people have linked (except the ones that arda didn't have in red) are great wigs. You will have NO choice but to do at least a little styling, if not more. All you can do is get over it and stop freaking out so much.

As previously mentioned, you posted this in the wrong section. This sub-forum is for commissioner offering their services.

There is a subforum for wigs for sale in which you can put up your wig for sale or trade. You can also put up a wanted ad for what you're looking for.

There is also a subforum for commissions wanted.

I second this. Their wigs are cheap quality and look nothing like the photo on the site itself. I would stay the hell away from them.

Eh, I bought a wig from Hellocosplay and it looked amazing, feels silky smooth, and got here in 3 days. It actually looks better than their stock photo, lol. All my friends who ordered from them have good experiences.


But, theres ups and downs to every site!
